We did end up buying the hand made, foam and latex free bed. It was over the top, but, after daily back pain for years, to suddenly realize my back has not hurt since the day we got it has made the pr

Finally! Took delivery today.  

Well, that ended up being a lot less painful than I thought. I started the day thinking I was going to buy memory foam but I ended up hating them.  I bought the Natural Mattress Stretch recommend

I've been using a leesa for about half a year now. No outgassing after the first night really. It's decent firmness while cool, but does tend to sag when it gets warmer. Not going to bottom out, but noticeable especially for side sleepers.

I don't know what a Leesa mattress is, but it makes me envision a blow-up doll.

Well when you have "pillows" like that, they're bound to sag at some point.

Is it just me, or does that doll have a bit of a Sheryl Crow thing? In the face only, of course.

So I have had the leesa mattress for over a week now. I am not sure if it is the right one for me. It has an initial softness but then conforms and has good support. My only real issue is that I have trained myself to be a side sleeper to help with snoring and better rest. I have noticed solder pain starting to come on as I continue to use the new bed. At first it caused me to have a lot of tossing and turning, but now that I have settled in, the pain has come in.  I will continue to use this one for a bit (I have 100 days), but I may order up another bed in the meantime (Casper or Tuft & Needle)

 

But it was fun to unpack...

What frame do you have Mikey? 

I have been using my latex mattress for a couple of months.  It is firmer than I thought it would be but conforms to my body.  I don't have trouble sleeping on my side in it so maybe it's not too firm, it just takes some getting used to not sinking into the bed.   I got the 9" X-firm/Firm/Med.  I think getting an extra later of "soft" on top might have been nice.  I guess I can always do that in the future if I wanted.  I am also fairly small person so maybe I don't sink as much and a FIrm/Firm/Med would have been better.

The Tuft and Needle should be a bit firmer and more uniform in compression. It's also cheaper and a healthier construction.

The Casper should be about the same firmness as the Leesa, but will have a bit more initial give.

That's like the HF review of mattresses there!

^  You are only cool if you get one of these beds.

Free returns with no questions asked is awesome.  I tried about 5 different mattresses before I settled on the one for our guest room and my daughters (big girl bed).

My daughter has a Naturepedic and our guest room has a Tuft and Needle.

^ Memory foam is also very sensitive to temperature from a firmness perspective. 

 I remember a number of years ago we drove up to visit the in-laws during the winter.  My wife threw her memory foam pillow in the trunk and by the time we got there it was a brick.  Took a good 48hrs+ to soften up again.

I have shoulder pain with memory foam as well... doesn't seem to be the right type of support for side sleepers, not sure why it would matter, but I have never been able to get use to the Tempurpedic at my in-laws.

We just bought a Tempur-pedic Prima hybrid coil mattress with Ergo+ base and had it delivered last week.

We slept on it for the first time Friday night, after I went home from the hospital. I started with this bed already having low back pain, so I had to see the chiropractor twice this week to get the back pain in a better place for evaluating the new bed.  

It's a bit firmer than our old generic 10" Thera-pedic memory foam mattress, so I don't sink down into a warm soft trench that I can't roll out of (like before). The old mattress didn't support my low back, causing my back to be in a similar hunched over position while laying on my back as if I was hunched over a computer desk.

Now I can roll onto my side, but still not have hip or shoulder pain on my side.  I'd like a little bit more low-back support for when I elevate my feet, so I stuffed a memory foam pillow back there last night, when I raised the feet or head of the bed.  If this doesn't work out then we're considering the Tempur-pedic with the adjustable air bladders.

Also, the Ergo+ base moves you head farther away from the headboard and night table when it's raised, while the $500 more expensive vibrating base keeps the head of the mattress up against the headboard when elevated.  So, while we don't need vibration, we'd like to not have a huge gap between the mattress and headboard when the head is elevated.  If we upgrade the mattress we might do both - we have 4 months to decide for 100% credit towards the more expensive bed.

Has anyone had experience with this bed or the one we're considering if this doesn't work out?

Going to buy a Casper mattress for the guest room at my parents' house and need to order it today.  Anyone have complaints about it yet? 

Can someone send me their $50 off code?  I believe you will also get $50 for referring a friend.

I am not sure the Casper offers discounts any longer.  Haven't seen them flowing around lately.

Not to throw a fork in you plans, but you might want to consider these guys... they are newer and offer customized bed-in-a-box mattresses.  Simply fill out their questionnaire and it will make a recommendation.  Priced quite well too

I don't like sights that make decisions for me.  

I tried a random $50 code from the internet that worked on Casper's site so they do have some discounts.  I'd rather a member for HC get the $50 though.

Is anyone aware of any reasonable mattresses made without foam - latex, petroleum, soy, or otherwise?

That kinda sounds like a "traditional" mattress, unless I read that wrong.  Do you want something without any of those?

Have you looked at Ikea?  They have rubber mattresses that don''t have any foam, or at least used to.  Well, it probably depends on what you call "foam."  Most mattresses probably have some foam on the top and bottom, for the quilted layer.
